I have had a very hard time committing to this year’s Writing SOL Challenge, but here I am at 10:07 p.m.
I’m here because of the positive experiences writing has given me during this challenge the previous 6 years.
I’m here because I know that just as the geese instinctively know when a fellow flymate is flagging, writers here will lift me up.
I’m here because I need to find out what I have to say at this time of my life.
I’m here because my yoga teacher taught me yesterday: “Never give up. Always let go.” This powerful message resonates for me at this moment. So many times I need to be reminded that I cannot control the outcomes of my efforts, but I must keep trying.
So I’m going to keep trying to write each day, and let the outcome be what it may.
Thank you for being here with me.
